My husband and I are new to chili as we're both picky eaters and never tried it before. I decided to try this recipe as it seemed simple and had ingredients I knew I'd like. I was nervous, but in the end it was worth it. We DEVOURED it! This was so simple to prepare and was amazing with shredded cheddar and sour cream. I think next time I'll add more paste and more spices as it wasn't very hot. Great base though for tweaking.
